- Colette, Flowers and Fruit, United States: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, Inc., 1986, edited by Robert Phelps
H.L.Mermod, a clever Swiss publisher, approached Colette in 1947 with the following proposition – “Once or twice a week,”…”I’ll send you some flowers. When one of the bouquets inspires you, you’ll sketch its portrait, and after a year or so, we’ll make a little book.” The result was Pour un Herbier, Mermod, 1948, portions of which are included in Flowers and Fruit.
Nice gig, don’t cha think?!? Happy May Day…give flowers.
